    NYC area retail technology expert offers 5 steps to discover data security breaches earlier to save money and protect business reputation—in a new article from eMazzanti Technologies
    A NYC area retail technology consultant and managed services provider (MSP) discusses steps to detect data security breaches earlier to save millions of dollars while protecting sensitive data and business reputation in a new article on the eMazzanti Technologies website.
    The informative article urges business security personnel to pay attention to little things, implement tight security policies and educate employees to detect warning signs of a security breach. The author also encourages business leaders to conduct regular security audits and constantly improve security to stay ahead of hackers.
    “Businesses that detect and address data breach warning signs earlier can save millions of dollars while protecting sensitive data and business reputation,” stated Almi Dumi, CISO, eMazzanti Technologies.
    Below are a few excerpts from the article, “How to Spot Data Breach Warning Signs to Protect Your Business.”
    “Alarmingly, according to a recent Ponemon study, hackers spend an average of 197 days inside the targeted system before being discovered. That represents more than six months to pull sensitive information, introduce malware or encrypt files.”
    “Adding to the problem, the mixture of public and private clouds, along with an increasingly mobile workforce and a growing IoT, creates an environment with hundreds of entry points. Hackers can enter the system, launch an attack and leave long before anyone notices any damage.”

    Pay Attention to the Little Things

    “The number one strategy to detect early data breach warning signs involves simply paying attention to the little things. If a user reports an unusual problem, no matter how small it seems, determine the source of the problem.”
    “Taking the time to discover the root cause of the problem can save significant headaches down the road. For example, a client recently reported a problem with a mailbox filling up quickly. After some detailed sleuthing, engineers discovered that hackers had added carefully hidden code that secretly forwarded copies of all outgoing messages to an unauthorized third party.”
